Mr. Whitfield was a Real Estate Agent and broker for many years, a member of Abba's House At My Church. Though in his ninth decade, Charlie never lost his wit, curiosity or relentless independence. He was a passive observer of life's events, as anyone who knew him would attest.
From his youthful days as a Georgia farm-boy to his title of great grandfather, there are none that could ever accuse Charlie of being dull. He was a dancer, a writer, a friend, a provocateur, a poet, a believer, an arguer, a brother, a husband, a father, a grandfather, and a great many other things that probably shouldn't be printed. Mostly he was a man who loved life. He is deeply loved and deeply missed and was a genuine one-of-a-kind.
Surviving are two daughters; Jane W. Shepard of Fairfax, VA, Mary Tobin of Clifton, VA, son; Charles R. Whitfield of Madison, VA, two half sisters; Peggy Walden and Sylvia Collins both of Cario, GA, two brothers; Hubert Whitfield of Colonial Heights, VA, Carroll Whitfield of Tifton, GA, four grandchildren; three great grandchildren.
Pallbearers: Matthew Tobin, Chris Lipscomb, Geoffrey Shepard, Cliff Schneider, Hadden Culp and Jason Brooks.
